    Conservatism is a term that's likely mutated from its original meaning in average usage.

    I've used them interchangeably, probably incorrectly.

      Especially when they drag out their crazy ideas. Transvaginal ultrasounds? Denying evolution? Tax breaks for oil companies? Secret holds on legislation?

      My legitimately conservative parents just shake their heads at this crazy stuff.

      For all that we disagree on (which is a whole heck of a lot), they agree that many of those in power -- they despise the Teaparty -- are out of control and dangerous. They certainly don't think these congressional representatives are "conservatives."

      So if you get hit by a bus tonight, would you be satisfied with how you spent today, your last day on earth? Live like tomorrow is never guaranteed, because it's not. -- Me.
